Seemingly, there is nothing the ladies from The Circle cannot do. Cook. Laugh. Replace a woman with a dude. Release a CD. It’s fun, and it reflects the style of the hosts and their market, and it’s a great way to help raise much needed funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia. Such a good idea. I wonder how many they’ll ship? From the press release:

Sony Music and Network Ten proudly present ‘Music From The Circle’, a collection of 38 classic hits chosen by “The Girls” from the hit TEN show, “The Circle”. In addition to smash hit songs by artists including Michael Jackson, Prince, Olivia Newton-John and Duran Duran, the album contains a new song entitled “Circle Song”, co-written by Clare Bowditch & Yumi Stynes and performed by Chrissie, Yumi, Denise & Gorgi.

The decision to make a compilation album was simple given the girls love of music and the important part it plays in the show. They host regular music artists for interviews and performances and their ‘Music Appreciation Day’ segment has become a popular part of the show. This segment sees the Girls counting down their top songs relating to topics ranging from the ‘Best Power Ballads’ to ‘Boy Bands’ to ‘TV Theme Songs’. It has become a viewer favourite with the phones and their facebook page running hot with song suggestions from fans of the show.

The Girls wanted to use the opportunity of making an album to highlight a charity they feel strongly about. As such, a donation of $5,000 from the proceeds of the CD will be made to Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia. The Girls had this to say, “We are so happy to be supporting Children’s Hospital Foundations Australia through this CD of songs we love. Music enhances the joyful moments in our lives. We really hope it enhances yours.”

The 2CD set will be available from music retailers from Friday 8th April, 2011.
